Tiz Miz Sue Follows Royal Delta

Trainer Steve Hobby continues to marvel at the sharp form being displayed by his 5-year-old mare Tiz Miz Sue, who came within a neck of knocking off champion Royal Delta last time out in the Grade 2 Delaware Handicap on July 21.

In that race, Tiz Miz Sue closed a four-length gap between her and Royal Delta after the six-furlong mark in the Del Cap and then steadily inched closer before missing right on the line in the 1 ¼-mile race.

“She ran a huge race; that’s all there is to it,” Hobby said Saturday morning. “She was training well, and we got nine pounds from [Royal Delta].”

The two will meet again August 26 in the Grade 1 Personal Ensign, a “Win and You’re In” race for the Breeders’ Cup Ladies Classic.

The stretch battle in Delaware appeared demanding, but Hobby said of Tiz Miz Sue, “She came out better than I had any right to expect. Not tired, ate up, and went back to the track.”

Tiz Miz Sue breezed four furlongs in 49.80 seconds on August 7, but the work accidently was posted under the name of her 4-year-old half-sister Sue’s Sweet Sioux, Hobby said.

In preparation for the Personal Ensign, Tiz Miz Sue will work five furlongs tomorrow at Monmouth. Hobby hasn’t set a travel schedule, but said he is considering shipping up in time for a gallop over the main track.

Tiz Miz Sue finished third in the Grade 1 Ruffian and third in the Personal Ensign last summer, both in losses to Ask the Moon. She wintered at Oaklawn Park, winning the Grade 3 Azeri and then finishing third in the Grade 1 Apple Blossom to the Bob Baffert-trained Plum Pretty.


Two races later, she came within of neck of Royal Delta and now will try again to pull off the upset.


“It would be pretty big,” Hobby said.
